Saturday Musings 


Happy Saturday from this guy. Things have been rough and stressful this week. My dad is not doing well and we know his time is coming. Thanks to everyone who has found time to send us messages and kind words. We appreciate your prayers and well wishes. 

Despite the difficulties, we have managed to find some smiles.


Speaking of smiles, someone is missing a few teeth…just in time for picture day at school. 


And this kiddo fed her PopPop some apples. 


Here are my girls sharing some mac and cheese at my parents’ house.


And then sleeping in their car seats.

We are spending time with family and enjoying my dad while we have him here still. If things get quiet on the blog in the next few weeks, please don’t worry. 

Here is what I’m reading this week:

Saturday 

Happy Saturday! 

This past week, we were headed up to WV to see our family. It was a short trip, but a great one.


Aubrey thoroughly enjoyed her sister’s vocal stylings.


And Emorie got schooled at the School of Rock via her great uncle Michael. We went to my other uncle’s house where we had a cookout. We saw cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles, great aunts and uncles… and we had tons of good things to eat all weekend long!! We had a blast, but like always, the visit wasn’t long enough. 

This weekend, we are helping some friends celebrate their birthdays and we are getting a few things done around the house. I’m also doing a little reading:

Saturday Musings 

I hope your week was as sweet as my girls enjoying these yogurt pops.


Speaking of enjoying, how much did my little girl enjoy this cup of ranch dressing? 


She’s certainly had a blast eating this week. 

My older daughter cheered in our local high school’s first football game of the season last night. She loved every minute of it, too.


And something else happened this week: I went back to work. My classroom is almost finished. 

​​​
​​
I’m back in eighth grade this year and I’m so excited. I’ve missed the “big kids.” I’m also coaching cross country this year, so I’m excited about that. 

Fitness goals

I’m down 15 pounds but I’ve got another five to go. I’ve gone sugar free, gluten free and I’m really feeling a lot better. I’m also still running and doing PiYo each day. I’m also drinking almost a gallon of water a day and I’ve really seen a big difference. 

Here’s what I’m reading this weekend:


Country Living: the untold story behind Rae Dunn’s pottery
Does anyone else love Rae Dunn? OMGoodness, I can’t get enough of that beautiful but simple pottery. 


BHG: Create an outdoor kitchen on a budget
I want an outdoor kitchen and I’m all about trying to save money.

Saturday Musings: a summer recap

What a wonderful, lovely summer it has been. A quick summer, but still a good one. 

At the beginning of summer, Emorie turned six.


Emorie also got to participate in a six week gymnastics class at her dance studio, and went to cheerleading camp for the first time ever.


Both kiddos had a blast at our church July 4 picnic.


This summer, Emorie attended Bible School for the fourth year and Aubrey for the first year. 

Then, our sweet girl attended Kingdom Kids at our church for the first year ever.


Then, we took a family road trip to Pigeon Forge before school started back. 

It’s so hard to believe our girl is headed to first grade this week. She’s had a wonderful summer and she’s grown and changed so much. 


I hope you all have a wonderful school year.

Saturday Musings 

Our summer is quickly drawing to a close. My oldest is due to start school in two weeks. My own school year will start in about 3 1/2 weeks. As a friend recently said, “Summer should get a speeding ticket!”

This week, my youngest climbed into the rocking chair and “read” some books.


Bed hair, don’t care.

My girls have enjoyed being together this summer.


And I keep getting cute snaps like this.

Check out Little Miss Hollywood!


Life updates:


Our Bible study is now almost three weeks in. If you are looking for a positive, encouraging Bible study that still teaches and convicts you, reach for this one. It’s amazing how Nicki Koziarz uses the Book of Ruth to illustrate perseverance and faith. It’s the perfect Bible study for where I am in life right now.


follow site Trim Healthy Mama & Fitness

I am 100% on plan now with THM after loosely following it for 18 months. I feel better than ever and have lost almost 15 pounds, and 14 inches. I sleep better and my hair and skin are healthier as well. Plus, I still eat many of the things I’ve always enjoyed, just with modified ingredients. I’m also exercising 30 minutes a day. We eat at home more as well, which has definitely been a game changer.

We are working now to get organized for the new school year. We have organized dressers, closets, the pantry, work spaces… we are working hard to simplify our lives before school starts. We are not currently working on any other projects.

Saturday Reading 

I’m going to depart from my usual Saturday reading to update you all a bit about my life and what we are up to.

Our sweet girl had her recital last Saturday and she was amazing! She also truly enjoyed herself.


Then, we went swimming for the first time this year.
My parents had the girls spend one night with them and then they went fishing.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m currently in an exercise program and doing Trim Healthy Mama. It doesn’t really have anything to do with trying to lose weight, but more so trying to be healthier. I’m feeling better than I have in awhile, but I still have a long way to go.

I am a teacher and we are anxiously awaiting the end of the school year. More on this later.

We currently have a few house projects in the works…nothing too major but nothing too small either. I’m really close to sharing one of them soon.

I hope you have an amazing weekend. Weekend Reading will resume next week in its regular format.

Weekend Reading 

I hope you’ve enjoyed your week. Mine had several highlights. For starters, we had a blast celebrating my birthday last week. Thank you all for the sweet messages, too!

I started doing genealogy recently and was able to trace several lines of my family back to the 1700s. I even found the names of some of my ancestors who emigrated from Europe. I even found a few surprises: I’ve always known my maternal grandmother was kin to the McCoys but I never knew my paternal grandmother was kin the the Hatfields. If you’re not familiar with the Hatfield-McCoy saga, I encourage you to check it out. 

On another note, here are my great- great-great grandparents, Abel and Sarah Musick.

I’m finding genealogy to be fascinating but really time consuming. I’ll probably delve deeper into it this summer.

Do any of you do genealogy? I love history, so I’d love to chat about it sometime.

Here’s what I’m reading this weekend:

Stonegable: Brighten up your kitchen with white 

25 things to do outside with your kids this summer

Cute Mother’s Day gifts to make

Make ahead Mother’s Day desserts

Here’s what we’ll be sharing this week:

Tips and tricks for hanging wall art

Our weekly routines for house management 

Wordfull Wednesday quote

A really fun flower pot made from recycled kitchen trash

Farmhouse style lights

Saturday Musings: Another trip around the sun

Happy weekend to you! Today marks 32 years I’ve been on this earth. I’d like to think I’ve got a lot to show for those years, but truthfully, I’ve got a lot more things I still want to accomplish. That’s enough seriousness for one day.

They’re my greatest accomplishment.

This past week was a busy one with lots of fun projects, but we’ve got more fun in store for you next week. Here’s what I’ll be sharing:

  1. Monday: How to turn a cheap piece of artwork into a cute farmhouse chalkboard
  2. Tuesday: A reorganized china cabinet
  3. Wednesday: Wordfull Wednesday with some “quoty goodness”
  4. Thursday: Creating interesting container gardens
  5. Friday: a farmhouse entry way revealed

And here’s what I’m reading this weekend:

Modern Parents Messy Kids: secrets to gorgeous plant pots

Setting for Four: How to grow a cut flower garden

BHG: Best plants for rock flower beds

BHG: Your Guide to Common Weeds

Have a wonderful weekend.

Weekend Reading

I hope you’re having an amazing weekend, and that you had a good week. We have had a wonderful week.

Last week, my husband and I were on opposite ends of the state- he at a fire prevention school at the beach, and me at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teachers in Cullowhee (a.k.a. home of my alma mater, WCU).

On Tuesday of last week, I sent him this picture of my view,

And he sent me this one of his:


We missed our sweet girls, who were with their grandparents, but FaceTime helped.


Yes, please ignore my rough appearance.

I am so glad to be back home with my sweet girls and my hubby.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
